    Welcome to the Happy List! I hope your October is off to a good start! This week on the blog I shared some plans for the backyard. Do I know what will happen back there? No, but a girl can dream. I also shared my recent obsession with pressed flower art. There are so many cool possibilities! On a housekeeping note, I *think* I fixed two blog things this week. First, if you are signed up on my email list to receive reminders when I publish a new blog post, those should be back in your inbox now.

    Why, hello! Welcome to this week’s Happy List! I hope the week has treated you well. No, better than well – fantastic! This week on the blog I got very passionate about establishing sentimental provenance for your family keepsakes. This seemed to strike a chord with many of you, so I’m glad I finally wrote about this idea. I also shared my infatuation with embroidered pillowcases! I’m hoping to add a pair to my bed linens soon!

    Welcome to the Happy List! It’s the middle of September already! Wow! Time flies when we are having…something. Is it fun? Not sure! Hahahahahaha! How about time flies when we are busy living our lives? That works. This week on the blog I shared our DIY Kitchen Cabinet Feet that we made from scrap wood. I also wrote a blog post rounding up fresh ways you can repurpose a piano if you aren’t going to play the darn thing. Please just play the piano!

    Hello and welcome to the Happy List! How is September treating you? I hope it is off to a good start. My kids are back in in-person school and it has been weird not having them here since they’ve been remotely schooled for the past year and a half. My brain is like, “We can focus on one thing at a time now?” This week on the blog I shared my summer thrift store finds and the brass leg tips I made for our blanket ladder. I hope you enjoyed those posts! If you aren’t following along with us on Instagram or Facebook stories, I invite you to hang out…
